The Driver’s Seat

I bought a new purse at the Emerald’s New Year sale (best shoes in Austin), which prompted me to clean out my fraying day-to-day purse and switch my stuff over. In the process, I found a fortune from Suzi’s: “Your place in the path of life is in the driver’s seat.”

This is an important message for writers. Sometimes we exert so much energy fretting what we cannot control (library budgets, the market, trends, success) that we forget how much power we do have (our vote, purchasing decisions, word-of-mouth, passion and strategy).

Today, think about your super-powers. Then decide what to do with them.
